JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Emory Johns Creek Hospital has received Chest Pain Center accreditation with PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC).
"It took a team of dedicated people across many hospital departments and services to achieve Chest Pain Center accreditation at Emory Johns Creek Hospital," said Craig McCoy, chief executive officer of Emory Johns Creek Hospital.
